Survey of Dental Materials Used by Dentists for Indirect Restorations in Saudi Arabia
Haider, Yousef / Dimashkieh, Mohiddin / Rayyan, Mohammad
The purpose of this study was to investigate the use and selection of materials for indirect restorations by dentists in Saudi Arabia. A structured 18-item questionnaire was designed and sent via email to all dentists with active memberships in the Saudi Dental Society. A total of 373 dentists (20.2%) out of the 1,846 contacted answered the questionnaire. The majority of the responding dentists (81.5%) prefer to use porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns for posterior teeth, while 77.5% use all-ceramic crowns for anterior teeth. Only 29.8% reported using computeraided design/computer-assisted manufacture in their practice. There was inconsistency among dentists in material selection, and this was affected by the dentist's gender, years of experience, specialty, and service sector.
